Arne Jacobsen Swan Chair in Original Blue Leather by Fritz Hansen

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This early Jacobsen swan chair is for the collector who appreciates the original blue leather and the wear of a lifetime of use.
The heavily patinated upholstery has lots of character and a couple of rips which we are having stabilized by a restoration studio so it can continue to be used and enjoyed.
